    Failed Surgical Procedure Claims

    Undergoing surgery is a difficult time both for the patient and those that love them. It’s usually a last resort, and an experience you want to get through quickly and safely. Which is what makes failed surgical procedures claims all the more difficult.

    You put your trust in your surgeon and the team providing your care. In essence, you believe:

    • that they are medical professionals;
    • ergo, they’ll do their duty to ensure you have every chance of making the best recovery possible.

    While most operations go precisely as planned, there are occasions where medical negligence leads to surgical failure. Errors can happen during your pre-operative assessment, during the surgery itself, or in your post-operative care. Wherever the fault lies, if you suffer an injury due to negligence you may be able to make a claim.

    What is Failed Surgical Procedure Negligence?

    Surgical procedures can fail even if everything goes forth in the correct manner. However, where it is avoidable then it may be possible to prove negligence did happen. Examples of surgical failure can include:

    • Damage caused during surgery.
    • Leaving medical objects inside patients.
    • Failure to obtain informed consent.
    • Operating on the wrong part of the body.
    • Failure to identify and treat an infection.
    • Causing nerve damage.

    Moreover, negligence can apply to cosmetic as well as medical surgery. So don’t think that because of your surgery that you can’t make a claim due to negligence. Even if it:

    • was voluntary, or;
    • because you saw a private surgeon instead of on the NHS.

    Case Study

    For example, a dancer and model was distraught with the result of her rhinoplasty. In essence, the procedure did not deliver a nose as per the discussion during her consultation. The patient also suffers a diathermy burn which involves scarring. Eventually, she:

    • earns compensation for the cost of necessary corrective surgery;
    • she also garners money to cover the loss of earnings as a model.

    Another patient receives advice that a partial (not full) knee replacement surgery would be sufficient. However, this fails to rectify her knee problems. Later, she continues to suffer from pain and awkward movement, eventually undergoing a full knee replacement.

    No Win, No Fee Failed Surgical Procedure Claims

    Having a foreign item surgically placed in your body is not without risk. However, with skilful insertion and the correct care, there is no reason it should be anything other than a success. Yet whether done for medical or cosmetic reasons, implant negligence claims are a fact of life. So if you believe you have experienced illness or injury due to implant negligence, The Medical Negligence Experts can help.

    What is Implant Negligence?

    Implant negligence can occur before, during, or after inserting the implant. When it happens, the results can be long-lasting both physically and emotionally.

    In short, implant surgery can relate to:

    • Breast implants.
    • Dental implants.
    • Hip, knee, or other prosthetic implants.
    • Contraceptive implants.

    Common Failed Surgical Procedure Claims scenarios

    There are several examples where compensation claims have been made successfully for implant negligence damages.

    • For instance, a failure to explain the risks with the implant, and obtain the consent.
    • Additionally, surgeons might use the incorrect type of implant.
    • Errors during implant surgery as well.
    • Failure to place the implant in the correct position.
    • Finally, any failure to detect and treat a post-surgical infection.

    Corrections for some implant negligence can occur with further surgery, however. Meanwhile, other surgeries leave patients forever carrying a reminder of the neglect they suffer. Compensation payments factor into account aspects, too.

    For instance, loss of earnings if your recovery time is longer due to negligence, or you need to take time off work for corrective surgery or treatment. Compensation can also include psychiatric damages. For example, if a failure in cosmetic surgery dramatically alters a person’s looks as a result.
